Mothers who frequently took acetaminophen (Tylenol) while pregnant were ~six times more likely to have a girl with language delays compared to mothers that took none. Does not establish causality but this association may warrant future investigation.

It does seem to suggest that alternative sources of fuel for the brain such as ketone bodies may play a role in slowing down disease severity...but we need more evidence before this conclusion can be made.

More sleep may lead to better food choices. A randomized controlled trial found that individuals that slept 1.5 hours longer than usual resulted in a 10-gram reduction in refined sugar intake compared to baseline levels.

Maybe "not even once" should apply to tobacco too? Almost 69% of people who tried smoking once went on to smoke daily according to a meta-analysis.

Didn't get great sleep? Maybe high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can help... at least when it comes to insulin resistance. HIIT before 24 h of sleep deprivation attenuated the increase of glucose, insulin, and free fatty acids in healthy males.
